NETS GAME NIGHT – #Nets @ #Sixers – Up The Turnpike Looking For A Win

Updated: January 8, 2013


Brooklyn Nets (19-15) @ Philadelphia Sixers (15-20)

Wells Fargo Center 7:00


The Nets are looking to get a fourth straight win tonight in Philadelphia and are playing with a new focus and passion and their record shows this.  The two new faces of MarShon Brooks and Mirza Teletovic seem to have found their confidence and are giving Carlesimo some much needed bench minutes and production.

The Sixers just finished a long 2-6 road trip that started Dec 21st and are happy to be home for the next 13 of 15 games. Philadelphia is beginning its fourth consecutive set of back-to-back games after getting two days of rest before this game. They just got manhandled at Oklahoma City and San Antonio in consecutive games and did not look good at all. Lets hope this trend continues tonight.

Matchup of the Game: Deron Williams vs Jrue Holliday

Holiday led Philadelphia with 24 points and nine assists in the last meeting between these two teams and Deron Williams seems to be finding his rhythm again and playing much better.  This matchup will go very far in determining the winner of this divisional battle.

Injury Report:

Nets – Kris Humphries (sprained left ankle) is questionable

Sixers – Andrew Bynum (Bilateral Knee Bone Bruises) is out.
